Ugjungnaq | Woolly Lousewort

Scientific name: Pedicularis lanata

According to Porsild, Inuit children liked to pick the flowers from this lousewort and suck the nectar from the base of the corolla. The people of the Great Slave region would take small pieces of these roots that were sun-dried, and mix them with tobacco. This was then smoked in a pipe to relieve headaches.

Although most lousewort roots are edible raw or cooked, the whole plant is destroyed once you pick the root. Because these plants were not seen as being plentiful, they were only eaten in emergency situations. The roots are apparently good roasted or boiled. source
